I like the way the intro blends different things and drones to lead into the vocals. The mix feels alive from the get-go and the first 30 seconds go by before one really knows it.

I like the way that the various synth melodic ideas, and that rough synth bass work so well with the vocal.

That guitar line is great. It fits just right, right where you put it. This mixing here is very solid.

I like the way that each time the vocals appear, there’s a slightly varied but entirely appropriate accompaniment. The piece seems to fit together just right, and yet it has its raucous moments.

I’ve enjoyed your samples a good bit here at the mixter, and your remixes are always solid. This one, though, seems to me the best thing you’ve posted here. It’s imaginative and makes good use of a lot of disparate elements—all in service of the vocal.

The part of the melodic break around 4 is nice. The languid guitar line around 4.28 also works very well. Then at 5, the little light keys is a nice break, especially as it slightly delays until the main riff kicks in.

I like the way that this has a kind of post-rock sensibility—you’re using all the rock ideas and instruments, but you’re getting something more.

Great job. Deserves its editor’s pick.

I too have enjoyed, even downloaded some of your samples here. Really superb, seamless, has a lot of movement, a little like your avatar, horses, pounding away. Bravo!

Dirty, desperate, nilhistic, beautiful, sublime. I especially like the parts where you bring it down to its bare bones.

Wonderful. Thank you.

The production and mix goes right to my gut. Excellent use of frequency range and compression to pull the most gritty elements of the beat to the forefront of the mix. Love the harmonic distortion and sonic mayhem that surrounds my head as i listen. great job.

I just wanted to let you know that I used your song in my Internet radio program “Under the Radar,” featuring songs from CCMixter. At the moment, we’re only broadcasting on-campus, but write back to me (amoolin89@ AT if you’d like to be informed when we go public!

Thanks, and keep up the great music!
